Just Magnolia DT - Dawny's sketch

Woohoo!! It's Friday and it's a Bank Holiday here in the UK !! (which probably means it is going to rain LOL). It is also time for another challenge at Just Magnolia and this week we have a scrummy sketch by Dawny. Thanks hun - it's gorgeous! I just had to ink up my newest Tilda - Secretive Tilda she's called and she is just so sweet in those dungarees and bare feet!!

I've coloured her with copics and also coloured a bit of a dirt track and sky background with copics too. I've painted the edges of the image mat with picket fence crackle paint and then inked with walnut stain distress ink.

I created the little letters myself with some Hampton Arts alphabet stamps and walnut stain distress ink before adding to a fancy tag with some jute string which is threaded through some eyelets from my stash.
I covered a chipboard heart with the same Magnolia paper and then painted the edges with crackle paint. All the paper edges have been painted too. The wooden button is from my stash.
The blossom and tiny gypsophilia flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the large white peony I made from mulberry paper using Magnolia's peony dies and some stamens from my stash. The branches were punched with MS branch punch.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Just Magnolia! I'll be back later with another Whiff of Joy preview for you and my Friday Flowers giveaway so I hope you can pop back! Thanks for looking! x

Oh wow, such a gorgeous card Jane. Funny enough I have just bought this stamp too and can't wait until she arrives so I can have a play. You have made her look fantastic.

Love all your other details too and gorgeous papers.

This is absolutely gorgeous, Jane! I love the papers and Tilda in her jeans gives a lovely country, homey feel to the card....gorgeous! Love the sentiment and the chipboard heart and wood button dangling down like that too! The mulberry Magnolia peony that you made is absolutely breathtaking, hun! I thought it was WOC flower until I read that you made it yourself...stunning! Just adore this card to bits!
